After a day exploring on the Gordon River Cruise, this play ended the day and complimented the cruise perfectly. It was very funny and the actors engaged with audience throughout. Highly recommended but I suggest you do the one of the cruises first.

I think the question has been answered. I hope you enjoy it as much as we did. I probably would not have gone to see it if not friends recommending it.

Just pay at the door. Try and get there early. They will do their best to find you a seat but we did see people being turned away at the last minute as the venue was full. Great show. Make the effort to see it.
